This year’s Vintage Surf Meet has moved from it location above Lusty Glaze to Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall. Things get under way from 10:30 and entry is free. There will be vintage surfboards to show, swap, sell and buy, plus surfing related memorabilia.
The event appears to have been expanded somewhat this year now being billed as a “Retro Surf Day” with a vintage surfboard rally, Classic VW Show and Shine, as well as a “retro” surf contest. A slide show from surf photographer Alex Williams will also be taking place on a large screen in the Fistral Beach Bar.

Issuu is a digital publishing platform; amongst the 1000′s of publications are some surfing gems. Considering these are available free online the quality of the photography is fantastic. There is enough here to keep you occupied for some time.
These are issues two through six of British Surfer. Issue one is the Holy Grail of UK surf magazine collecting!
British Surfer was started by guys in Swansea in the late sixties, then Rod Sumpter was asked to edit further issues, so it moved to Newquay. Rod’s then girlfriend, did most of the legwork though. Only six were produced in total. Similar copies to these I’ve seen were on eBay and sold for about £300!
